Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

Just a song cut off halfway

Day 3 of gray, rainy days.  Yay.

At least NESN got their act together long enough for us to be able to watch the Red Sox beat the Twins (putting them up 3-1 in the Mayor’s Cup race).  We could watch sunny Florida on our televisions and forget all the rain.  It was nice for a few hours!

Luckily, the rain is going away and the rest of this week will be beautiful in Boston.  Unfortunately, today we’re not only stuck with the rain but with no way to follow the Red Sox/Orioles game except through MLB.com’s “Scoreboard“.  No NESN or MLBN, no MLB.tv, no radio…nothing but text to witness Mike Lowell’s first game of the spring (at first base no less).

If you’re desperate for some live baseball, the MLBN will be showing a Blue Jays/Tigers game at 1pm ET and then at 5pm ET an Indians/Brewers game and THEN at 10pm ET a Royals/White Sox game.  So there IS baseball to be had today…it just isn’t Red Sox baseball.

In the meantime, something more amusing than Johnny Damon in a Tigers uniform:  Caryn Rose aka Metsgrrl has launched a new blog today called “All Down the Line: Baseball Roadtripping” where she has reviews and photos of all the baseball parks she has visited.  She breaks them down by food, fans, seating, and other criteria in a way I haven’t seen anywhere else.  Caryn’s a great writer and an intense baseball fan and I think you’ll find her observations informative and entertaining.  Why not give her a visit?

2 1/2 weeks to Opening Day (night)!

  1. Great idea of a blog! She’ll have to get to Arlington to rate their park and so I can buy her a beer!
